Bottled@vPBF III. More or less black colour, mediumsized brown head that leaves good lace. Aroma is chocolate, ashes, some liquorice and toffee. Flavour is ashy, roasted malts, some toffee and mild liquorice to it. Pleasant and quite easy to drink.

Opaque black - brown beer, good pale tan head. Palate is light and airy and semi dry. Softish dark malts, very light roast. A little tangy. Touch of lactose. Trace of orangey fruits. Light semi dry finish. Pretty standard stuff and lacking the usual Maine fairy dust.

Dark brown pour with an off-white head. Nose is roast, ash, and char. Somewhat chalky, a little bit of cocoa powder, coffee grounds, and a light acidity. Strong roasted malt and ash character to the flavor, too. Coffee grounds, dark chocolate, chalk, and a light bitterness. Minimal sweetness and a definite acidity.
